County Wicklow

County Wicklow (Contae Chill Mhantáin in Irish) lies immediately south of County Dublin, along the east coast of Ireland.  Its topography is unusually diverse for Ireland; containing a beautiful mix of rolling mountains, ancient woodlands, cascading waterfalls, sparkling glacial lakes and golden sandy beaches.

All the natural scenic treasures of this region have earned this largely rural county the title “The Garden of Ireland”.

Hidden around every corner are rich and interesting attractions including charming villages and towns, the 6th century monastic site of Glendalough, Wicklow Mountains National Park and some of Ireland’s most magnificent historic houses and gardens.  There is more than enough to see and do in County Wicklow to keep a visitor busy for several weeks.
